Pio Decimo Center’s roots go deep in Tucson’s vibrant Barrio Santa Rosa community.
The Eucharistic Missionaries of St. Dominic established Pio Decimo in 1946 as their convent, and soon began to minister to the poor and hungry. From these charitable roots, we’ve grown into a dynamic hub of community activity.
Today, we provide support and solutions to help our community members grow and thrive.
Pio Decimo Center helps individuals and families make lasting, positive change in their lives.
For our youngest community members, we provide childcare and early childhood education. We help children start school with confidence, ready to learn.
At our Youth Center, teens find recreational activities, skill-building classes, and mentors. These resources can help them navigate the bumpy road to adulthood without relying on gang membership or drugs.
For families, we offer practical solutions to complex problems. Our programs help to reduce poverty, prevent homelessness, and encourage home ownership.
And for seniors, we provide safe and affordable housing in active, caring communities.
